The Persistent Desktop Dilemma
Most IT organizations would prefer to deploy persistent virtual desktops because that deployment model is the least disruptive to an IT organization. It uses the same desktop images already deployed on PCs, the same existing tools, and the same processes already in place and perfected over the last several years, to maintain and upgrade those images. However, without Atlantis ILIO™ persistent desktops require so much storage to achieve the same level of performance as a PC that most organizations just cannot afford to deploy. The cost of storage typically drives up the combined CAPEX and OPEX cost of the infrastructure (server, storage and network) to $1,000-$2,000 per desktop in order to deliver equal-to-PC performance.
The Atlantis ILIO Persistent VDI Solution
Atlantis ILIO Persistent VDI™ is the first solution that enables Citrix XenDesktop and VMware View customers to deploy VDI immediately using existing images while delivering virtual desktops that are faster and cheaper than PCs. It uses Atlantis ILIO In-Memory Storage™ technology to deliver persistent virtual desktops that run using only server RAM as primary storage, eliminating the traditional requirement for large amounts of expensive, high-performance storage. Virtual desktops now run from server RAM, delivering a fantastic user experience that drives virtual desktop acceptance across your organization. The solution uses a small amount of shared SAN/NAS storage – up to 95% less – to maintain a real-time optimized backup to ensure complete data protection and availability.

In addition, Atlantis ILIO Persistent VDI allows you to get started with desktop virtualization immediately without having to invest in complex application virtualization, transform your desktop images, or reorganize the way you manage desktops. Atlantis ILIO allows you to use your existing images, as well as your current physical desktop processes and tools to upgrade, update and patch all virtual desktops.
“Atlantis Computing ILIO, can support diskless, DAS or other storage configurations and has been proven at scale above 10,000 virtual desktops.”
